Pac­ers add Matthews to ros­ter af­ter he clears waivers

The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - SPORTS -

IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS >> Free agent guard Wes­ley Matthews has of­fi­cially signed with the In­di­ana Pac­ers.

The move was first re­ported fol­low­ing Thurs­day’s trade dead­line, but the Pac­ers couldn’t an­nounce it un­til Sun­day. Matthews was waived by the Knicks af­ter a deal that sent Kristaps Porzingis to Dal­las and cleared waivers on Satur­day.

Terms of the deal were not an­nounced.

Matthews will help fill the void left by All-Star guard Vic­tor Oladipo, who will miss the rest of this sea­son with a rup­tured quad ten­don in his right knee.

In 45 games with Dal­las, Matthews made 44 starts and av­er­aged 12.8 points, 2.3 re­bounds and 2.3 as­sists.

Pac­ers pres­i­dent of bas­ket­ball op­er­a­tions Kevin Pritchard called Matthews a “solid pro­fes­sional” who will “fit in well” with In­di­ana.
